Any book published in the US prior to 1923 is in the public domain in the US, so that's just the two Agatha Christie's that you've found.

In most of the rest of the world, books enter the public domain at the start of the year following either the 50th or the 70th anniversary of the author's death. Agatha Christie died in 1976, so the rest of her books won't enter the public domain in "life + 50" countries until 2027, and in "life + 70" countries until 2047. I'll leave you to check the other authors.

Over 50 of Agatha Christie's books are, however, available as very reasonably-priced eBooks at any decent eBook store - eg FictionWise.

Thanks!

I was wondering what the formula was. Clear, understandable answer.

I'd like to have HarryT (in all his spare time -- snork) do the D'Artagnan Romances in Mobi some time. I keep seeing it in the lrf format and try to get it on my Kindle with no luck. So:

pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease

I'm willing to debase myself further if necessary. 8?)

You need me to come over to your house and wash dishes while you're concentrating on this, the most important of all tasks?

Yes, but there is no Three Musketeers for my Kindle at the end of the washing up!

Actually, I could use someone here to do the laundry. I do not like folding and putting away the clothes.

Sorry, Wolf. It's not you. Really.

I'd just rather hang out in ZP's apartment being read to as I do her dishes.

It's a really scary thing that I'd rather hang out with HarryT, doing his dishes while he does the D'Artagnan books.

Ladies and gentleman - the "lounge" is the appropriate place for off-topic discussions. Please keep this thread for what the title says - requests for Mobi books.

Thank you.

The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey

I'd love to have this book in mobipocket format - free or not.

It was published in the UK in 1951, and the author died in 1952. Is it in the public domain yet?

Regards, Alex

It is in the public domain in Canada, but not in the UK.

Several of Josephine Tey's books have recently appeared on PG Australia. I've converted them for our upload section.

Has "My Secret Life" by Walter been converted to e-text yet? The first edition was published privately 1888-1892 in Brussels. Grove Press brought out a complete edition in 1966 in the US, and Arrow Books published all 11 books in 3 volumes in 1994 in the UK.
